In Canada and in the rust belt here, that would be a good buy for $5,000 Cdn = 4,000 US$ / if it was 4x4 - 2WD here makes it more like $3,500 Canadian IMO...overpriced by 50%.
If it was 4x4, $5,000 US would be tops and probably even a stretch, given the 190,000 miles.
- FWD is a deal breaker, on overpriced SUV's

I recently paid $9,000 Cdn (which was a steal) for a 2000 4Runner, v6, 4x4, in mint shape.
- a rust free SR5 model and loaded with convenience options
- true one owner & garage kept vehicle with only 80,000 original miles or 129,600 Km
^^ I gladly paid much more than KBB estimates (this time), as used condition was close to perfect for a +15 year old SUV - plus senior owned & maintained at Lexus/Toyota dealership (since new).
- sometimes value guides, are just that / just a ball park...but usually not for the top 1 or 2%
Nobody sells the older & desirable pristine vehicles, on the cheap / if their is a following, for the make.
